-  Anthropology of Law, 471: This course includes an examination of law cross-culturally, including medieval Iceland and the local Coast Salish peoples, a consideration of underlying concepts in various legal systems, the debates which have concerned anthropologists examining the law, and a detailed look at one legal system, the BC Human Rights Tribunal. Students will carry out original research from BCHRT decisions. Finally, we look at courts as ethnographic sites and interview a sitting judge and a lawyer who specializes in Indigenous womens cases.
